A 33-year-old man was arrested for smashing the windows of several cars with a helmet after he was unable to get a room at a hotel.
According to Kluang District Police chief ACP Low Hang Seng, the incident happened at 4.30am today (21 January) when the man tried to get a room at Oro Hotel in Kluang, Johor but became angry when the hotel told him that they were fully booked.
The man then took his helmet and went to the public parking lot in front of the hotel while one of the hotel staff called the police. While waiting for the police to arrive, the staff heard loud noises from the front of the hotel and saw that the man was smashing windows of the cars parked there, reported Oriental Daily.
Four car windows were smashed including the hotel staff’s Proton Waja, a Proton Saga, a Honda Accord and a Mitsubishi Pajero.
While the suspect continued to wander around near the parking lot with the helmet in his hand, the police arrived and immediately arrested him and seized the helmet. All the owners of the cars involved in the incident subsequently lodged police reports.
Investigations found that the man comes from Taman Sri Kluang, Kluang. After undergoing a urine test, it was discovered that the man tested positive for methamphetamine.
Meanwhile, the case is being investigated under Article 427 of the Penal Code which states that,
“Whoever commits mischief and thereby causes loss or damage to the amount of RM25 or upwards, shall be punished with imprisonment for a term of not less than one year and not more than five years or with fine or with both.”
